Join us for the Atlas of Culture conference

The conference will be held on 3-4 October at the ICE Kraków Congress Centre. The Krakow Festival Office invites representatives of cultural institutions from smaller and larger centres, event agencies and business community to the conference, which is one of the biggest events in Poland, devoted entirely to the subject of culture, its social context and business environment.

The second edition of the conference (the first one was held in 2017, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Krakow Festival Office) is a time of change: the programme, space for debates and workshops will be devoted to cultural institutions and entities supporting culture from all over Poland and other European countries. This time we will focus on the multifaceted character of contemporary culture, from events organised in small towns to the international dimension. If projects from big cities are included, it is as a source of inspiration. Participants will learn how the implementation of long-term cultural programmes and strategies can affect the well-being of residents and our immediate environment. Experts will draw attention to aspects of organising events less visible in everyday media life. The issues that will be present in the panels and lectures this year include “Culture of inclusion", "Culture is a woman" or "Culture without barriers". The conference programme also includes accompanying events, such as literary walks and an evening meeting in the perfect Krakow atmosphere.
